Bodyspace: Anthropometry, Ergonomics and the Design of Work, by Stephen Pheasant,Christine M. Haslegrave

By Stephen Pheasant,Christine M. Haslegrave

within the two decades because the ebook of the 1st version of Bodyspace the wisdom base upon which ergonomics rests has elevated considerably. the necessity for an authoritative, modern and, in particular, usable reference is as a result nice.

New assurance within the 3rd variation:

  • Guidance on layout suggestions and sensible suggestion on accomplishing trials
  • Overview of contemporary advances in simulation and electronic human modes
  • Dynamic seating
  • ·         fresh paintings on hand/handle interface

  • Computer enter devices
  • ·         notebook computer use and children’s use of pcs

    ·         layout for an getting older inhabitants and accessibility for individuals with disabilities

    ·         New methods to possibility administration and new evaluate instruments, laws, and criteria

    Eine erweiterte Methode zur Korrektur von Interferenzeffekten in Freistrahlwindkanälen für Automobile (Wissenschaftliche Reihe Fahrzeugtechnik Universität Stuttgart) (German Edition)

    Alexander Hennig untersucht die auftretenden Interferenzeffekte in Freistrahlwindkanälen sowie deren Korrektur. Im Fokus steht der Versperrungseffekt des Fahrzeugnachlaufs und dessen Inter­ferenzwirkung mit dem Windkanalkollektor. Basierend auf Windkanalstudien wird ein erweitertes Verfahren entwickelt, das den Versperrungseffekt des Nachlaufs realitätsnah abbilden kann.
